Many businesses may look differently into the post-pandemic future, planning a hybrid- virtual model for their staff that combines remote work with some days in the office. The flexibility to work from home has indeed proved ongoing connectivity and productivity increases. Additionally, lowered levels of stress or anxiety.
The BBC has recently conducted a survey of the 50 UK’s biggest firms, from which 24 have no plans to have staff return to their offices. Another statistic based on the McKinsey Reimagine work survey has found, that 25% of 5,043 employees in both, government and corporates positions has declined in the number of staff who want to come back to the full-time work in the office, decreasing from 62% pre-Covid to 37% post-pandemic. These numbers prove that moving to a hybrid mode is rather inevitable for most businesses around the world.
